I do not know why Channel 4 promoted this as a thriller. I reviewed each episode after it had aired and my approach was that of a mystery thriller. In that context it was found wanting. No one but Tom Kendrick could had done it.
Deadwater Fell was more of a character study. The final episode shows how the Kendricks died and why.
It really was an insight of Dr Tom Kendrick. A sly manipulative individual. A plausible liar. Deluded, a fantasist. You see that even his own mother is frightened of him.
In some ways I thought this was a companion piece to White House Farm over on ITV. Jeremy Bamber could easily be a real life version of Tom Kendrick.
